Abstract

A 20 year-old woman presented with features of a twisted ovarian cyst and had an emergency laparotomy. Intraoperative findings revealed bilateral, solid ovarian tumors and a left oophorectomy with biopsy of the contralateral ovary performed. Histopathology report confirmed Burkitt lymphoma of ovary. There was no other evidence of lymphoma elsewhere. The primary Burkitt lymphoma of the ovaries was successfully managed with six courses of highly toxic chemotherapy (Berlin- Frankfurt- Munster 1986 protocol). The patient has remained disease free for the last 36 months.
